Pat Boyd passed away February 8, 2018. Below is from his obituary.
With the greatest of sadness, we share heartbreaking news. Our beloved Pat has left us. Pat died of cardiac issues after playing a game of pickleball, which he loved, with friends whom he loved. The medical team at UW Medicine, Valley Medical Center, and then at the University of Washington in Seattle, gave him their best. He was revived until he could be revived no more.
Pat was born to Andrew Guy and Margaret Boyd in Vancouver, Washington, the third of six children. He worked for General Construction Company (GCC) for 37 years, until retiring in 2014. His last position with the company was as District Equipment Manager.
Pat as described by his cherished son: My Dad was genuine, an honest man with a great heart, rock solid.
And as described by his long time friend:
Pat could build anything, fix everything and would help anyone.
Pat loved family, fatherhood and friendship.
Pat never balked at hard work, competition, and doing the right thing.
And I will miss that laugh.
Pat is survived by his wife, Lisa Carney; his son, Andrew (Megan) Boyd; and three grandsons, Lachlan, Cohen, and McKenon 'Mack' Boyd; his siblings, Kathy (Mike) Otis, Joe (Nancy) Boyd, Denise Dawson, Pete (Jen) Boyd, Sharon (Andy) Beach; cousins; ten nieces and nephews; and goddaughter, Leah.
Pat was preceded in death by his father, Andrew Guy Boyd; mother, Margaret Boyd; and brother-in- law Jim Dawson; and his uncle, Roy Carroll and aunt, Lorna Carroll.
